KSqS Cret Sprite.png Cret is a flying enemy from Kirby: Squeak Squad. Appearing as a small yellow ball-shaped creature riding a cloud, it spends its time flying in singular directions, occasionally dropping Coconuts. If Kirby tries to Inhale it, its cloud is lost, and it pops out of existence, leaving something behind. This thing could be a Food item, a 1-Up, or a Gordo. It also bears a resemblance to Lakitu from the Mario series and has a similar attack strategy.

Game appearances[edit]

Kirby: Squeak Squad[edit]

This title serves as Cret's only appearance as an enemy in the series. It is not a common enemy by any stretch, and always appears solo, without any others of its kind.

Cret is one of the few enemies in the game which does not reappear after being defeated if Kirby leaves the vicinity and comes back.


Cret can be found in the following levels and stages:
